The word Barn comes from the Old English “bere”, for barley (or grain in general), and “aern”, for a storage place—thus, a storehouse for barley. (Source: Wikipedia).
Barns are a regular feature of the semi-country side Ohioan landscape. It is not possible for you to drive 5-6 miles, or maybe even less, without spotting one. The barn, which is the subject of this post, seems to have been abandoned for a long time now and is currently in a ramshackle state. Looks like the owner has raised a new, albeit small one just beside it.
